Nouveau Nautical

All on board. This season classic nautical designs are given a new twist via juxtaposed stripes and playful patterns. Leisure stripes inspired by retro poolside, chevron patterns, diagonal stripes and elliptical designs. Inspired by Cape Cod summers, designs are transformed by kitsch and playful nautical motifs, striped bands and conversational prints inspired by the sea. A riot of lively color and pattern combine graphic and organic designs. Contrasting patterns are mixed and matched for surprising results. Colors are bright and breezy featuring sunlit shades of swimming pool blues, corals, soft citrons and cranberry.
